Francis Scott Key High School has received the Carroll County High School of the Year award from the American Red Cross for their outstanding support to the Red Cross mission and helping to save lives by coordinating blood donations during the 2015-2016 school year.

Students at Francis Scott Key High School collected 105 units of blood during two blood drives, making them the highest yielding high school in Carroll County. In recognition of this outstanding achievement, the school received $750 dollars in student scholarships. The school presented three scholarships in the amount of $250 each to Cami Handel, Mariah Jones, and Jacob Whitfield. These students consistently helped recruit donors, advertise for the blood drive, and work at the blood drives.

The American Red Cross High School Scholarship Program offers high schools the opportunity to help others, while also helping establish a scholarship fund to benefit engaged students as they move on to higher education. The scholarship program is available for high schools that host at least one Red Cross blood drive during the school year. By participating in the American Red Cross High School Scholarship Program, schools and students can help build a stronger community currently and for many years to come.
